Good Lord

I never thought I'd see the day that I'd be in agreement with a Labour peer, let alone the much behaired Lord Desai. But his recent comments on Velcro McBean, Gordon Brown-Trousers himself, couldn't be more true.

According to the Telegraph (and just about all of the other major sources) Lord Desai said, in an interview with the Evening Standard, "Gordon Brown was put on earth to remind people how good Tony Blair was."

Naturally, I can't agree that Tony Blair was actually a "good" Prime Minister. In fact, he was about as far from good as it was possible to be at that time. But, despite plumbing new depths of sleaze, his unsuitability for the job has now been surpassed by Gordon Brown's. Some weeks ago, I pointed out that, although Crazy Cameron had raised his game a little, his efforts were not sufficient to explain his explosive popularity in the opinion polls.

No, the credit for that hitherto massively unlikely meteoric rise must lie with Gordon Brown. And now he's done it again - just when you thought a Labour PM couldn't be any worse than Tone, Gord proves you wrong. He's like a poster child for the opposition, isn't he? No wonder there are rumours of a leadership challenge afoot within his own party.

Trouble is, they've left it a bit late. The next election is almost upon us, and the chances of them dumping Gordon Brown-Trousers AND finding a replacement capable of out-smarming Crazy Cameron and out shagging Nick Clegg-over are remote. Should have gone to the polls when they had the chance, eh? Shame Gordon was too afraid of winning, though that doesn't seem to be much of a risk now.

Billy Seggars.
